Easter is just around the corner and along with the baskets and pretty flower arrangements, it’s always nice to include a card. I’m creating a springtime scene today using a die from Sizzix called Bunny Scene.
I love how it’s an all in one piece that you can add color to or just leave white as a silhouette. For my project today, I added color with Distress Oxide ink creating a soft look that is perfect for spring.
I started with the brightest colors on the flowers blending Picked Raspberry with a small cotton makeup applicator you can get at any drug store. The pointed tip makes it easy to get into small areas.
From there, I blended Mowed Lawn, Antique Linen and Walnut Stain to the trees, leaves, grass and rabbits using a combination of the makeup applicators and small sponge daubers. I added a small piece of brown cardstock behind the rabbits’ eyes to give them some color.
I blended some Squeezed Lemonade onto the little die cut butterflies to scatter them over the Easter scene.
The soft colors of the ink blending give a calm and serene look to this card.
Thanks so much for joining me today!
